Self-service, self-guided, online, interactive, and engaging, you’ll make it a standard part of your community service assignments. I designed it to augment, document, and enhance existing community service assignments. This includes community service as part of academics, as consequences or sentencing from the court, or as service learning in school or church.

InnerState1 Curriculum

Preparing for the Journey: The Power in Choice – This course supposes that choice is the foundation for empowerment. The goal here is to help participants recognize and embrace the fact that they always have a choice. Understanding this concept creates an infinite source of power for change within them. We all know that good things and bad things happen in life… to every person. Teaching participants to choose their reaction to each situation helps them understand that they have the power to determine how satisfied or dissatisfied they are with their lives.

Preparing for the Journey: The Power in the Present – The premise behind this chapter is that worry cannot exist in the present. By helping them move from the past or future into the PRESENT, this unit allows participants to recognize how much of their time is spent on unproductive worry and how that time can be used for better things.

The Power in Values – The goal for participants in this Pit Stop is to choose 3-5 core values that they can truly embrace in their lives and to show how these values steer them in their decisions, choices, actions, and ultimately, their entire journey…

The Power in Approval – Participants explore approval from two angles: 1. What does someone have to do to GET their approval? 2. What do they require of themselves to get their OWN approval? The purpose here is for participants to recognize the power that approval can hold in their lives and to formulate healthy ways in which to deal with this power.

The Power in Self-Appreciation – This pit stop is intended to help participants learn multiple ways to accept and appreciate who they are. It also contains specific tools to address feelings of self-doubt.

The Power in Natural Abilities – In order for participants to live a purposeful life, it is crucial for them to discover what part they play in making the world a better place. The goal of this pit stop is for participants to identify their natural abilities and discover ways to use these abilities to contribute to the world in positive ways.

The Power in Self-Care – The goal of this unit is for participants to identify what drains them of their energy and what restores them with energy. Helping the participants find ways to truly take care of their physical, mental, emotional, and soulful selves gives them back the “fuel” they need to keep going on their individual paths and the tools to manage stress more effectively.

The Power in Anger – Anger is one of the most powerful emotions human beings have, and often, anger runs deep. The purpose of this unit is to help participants see that not only can anger keep them from moving forward, but also it can give them tremendous power for positive change in their lives.

The Power in Fear – In life, fear is often an obstacle. It can even be and excuse keeping us from moving forward. This lesson guides participants toward the idea that fear is a choice and that whether they are scared of something or not, is secondary. What they are willing to do in spite of their fear is what makes them great.

The Power in Relationships – This pit stop helps participants identify two kinds of relationships: those they choose (friends/boyfriend/girlfriends) and those that choose them (parents/siblings/teachers). It also demonstrates to participants that there is power in their connection to other people and that their relationships are a part of who they are. The key take away is that participants need to be the kind of person they want to have in their lives.

The Power in the Future – In this final pit stop on their trip, participants ask themselves, “What do I want out of my life?” and “What are my ultimate hopes and dreams?” By reflecting on what they have learned at the previous pit stops, participants begin to identify what they want from their lives. The idea is for participants to realize that they need to make choices that move them towards their goals and to help them determine if they are truly traveling on the path that is right for them.

The Power in ME – This exercise concludes Innerstate1 by asking participants to record on a map all of the key concepts that they have learned in the program. Once completed, participants will literally have “a map of the road within.” The idea here is to leave participants with a visual compilation of everything they have learned so that they may refer to it as their individual journeys continue.
